Homes for Rent
If you would like to rent a home from Severnside, the first step is to register with Shropshire Homepoint. Shropshire Homepoint provides a one-stop solution for people seeking housing and manages the Shropshire Housing Register, also known as the Housing Waiting List.
Visit their website at www.shropshirehomepoint.co.uk
Shropshire HomePoint is the one-stop shop for social housing in Shropshire, and includes homes from Severnside, South Shropshire Housing Association, Meres and Mosses Housing Association and Shropshire Council. The scheme includes rented and shared ownership homes.
Homes are let through Shropshire HomePoint in accordance with Shropshire Affordable Housing Allocation Policy and Scheme. This policy is available on the Homepoint website or through this link.
There are a number of benefits of choice based lettings:
You only have to fill out one application form to join the Shropshire HomePoint Register.
There will be a single allocation policy across all the Shropshire HomePoint partners.
You decide which properties to apply for.
All properties are advertised so you can see what is available and where
There will be support for vulnerable applicants to use the new Scheme
Shared Ownership is a government–backed scheme for people who are unable to afford to buy a home at full market value and is aimed at the first-time buyers and helps many first time buyers get a foot on the property ladder:-
You own part of your home, rather than paying rent with no return.
Your monthly rent and mortgage can work out cheaper than buying outright and sometimes not much more than renting.
You can buy more shares (limits apply) or sell your share if you want, when you want.
You only buy what you can afford so you don’t overstretch yourself financially.
Severnside Housing has created a company called Severn Homes and all Shared Ownership sales are now managed through Severn Homes.
Severn Homes offers a growing portfolio of high quality homes for rent, sale and shared ownership throughout Shropshire.
Please visit the Severn Homes website for more information about Shared Ownership and to view the properties available.
